Harry Maguire is set to undergo his medical on Monday after Manchester United finally agreed a deal for the centre-back worth £80m with Leicester City, according to The Sun.

United have been trying to sign Maguire all summer after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer identified the England international as the man to help tighten up his defence after the Manchester giants conceded 54 Premier League goals last season.

The Mirror reported on Saturday evening that Maguire had informed Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers that he wanted to leave the King Power Stadium and it looks like that has paved the way for a deal to be struck with United.

After rejecting their initial bid of £70m, The Sun claims Leicester have now accepted Man Utd’s latest offer worth £80m in total with £60m being paid upfront and a further £20m coming in add-ons.

The newspaper says Maguire is now set to travel to Manchester to undergo his medical on Monday and put pen-to-paper on a long-term contract after United beat-off competition from City to secure his signature.

If the transfer goes through, Maguire will become the most expensive defender in history as the £80m deal will surpass the £75m Liverpool paid Southampton for Virgil van Dijk in January 2018.

Leicester will make a huge profit having signed Maguire for £17m two years ago and The Sun says the Foxes have already found a replacement for the 26-year-old after agreeing a £45m deal to sign Lewis Dunk from Brighton.

We’ll have to wait for further developments over the next 24 hours but if these reports prove accurate then United are about the wrap-up their third signing of the summer having already snapped-up Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

The fee may be huge, but Maguire would be an excellent signing for Manchester United as he’ll be a big upgrade on the likes of Chris Smalling and Phil Jones so no doubt his arrival would be warmly welcomed by the fans.

    There’s no way Maguire is a better signing than Ruben Dias, Woodward got it wrong again.

    ManU still has plenty of issues to deal with because they haven’t addressed the midfield which is most important.

    Maguire is a good defender but he’s very slow.Utd defence needs a captain like Vidic before.I don’t know if its problem has been solved! Let’s wait and see.

    United need to sign quality players, not to price and leave, look at other top clubs how their doing, am nt impress with the way they not want to go for quality players

    Man utd was the club that had a solid defence those days.The likes of Rafael,Evra,Vidic and Rio.It wasn’t easy to pass on them.It really hurts me now that we conceded many goals than any other club in the PL! We want to bring in Maguire,no problem,but I’m not sure if he can minimizes defensive issues at Utd.Let’s just hope for the best this season.Then,we need creative midfielder like Fernandes so tha our young and pacy attackers can find the nets at an ease.Ole,convince Ed woodward to give you Fernandes immediately.

    It will be a good move if they add on Fernandes.
    Our problems won’t be solved with expensive players but talented players. Let’s wait and see.
